Wildfires

Wildfire

Often times we see smoke far away from bushfires. Farmers burn down grasslands to avoid the hard work cutting down the grass before they plant something new. I have to research more about the consequences of that on the soil quality but it seems wrong....

Magret, Cristina & Ellen on their way to visit a preschool
